As Joey Lawrence would say, “Woah!” The second-ever American version of Celebrity Big Brother kicked off last night with the first half of a two-night premiere. The second half airs tonight. It served mainly as an introductory episode: To the house, to the game and to the 12 “celebrities” that will compete for the $250,000 grand prize. I am ecstatic to be bringing you “recaps” of Celebrity Big Brother this season and I for one feel like we’re off to a very interesting start!
So why were the words “celebrities” and “recaps” put in quotes, you might ask? Well, that’s because it would be hard not to notice that the 12 contestants this season are not exactly…how shall I say…household names. How do you know you’re not a celebrity? Well for one, you find yourself competing on Celebrity Big Brother, for a cash grand prize and not for your favorite charity. In the same vein – and much like my Survivor column for this very same outlet – what I plan to bring you this season isn’t exactly a blow-by-blow “recap” of the show, but rather my thoughts, analysis, and reaction to the episode (or episodes) that we just witnessed. In other words, I’ll assume that you’ve seen the episode(s) each time, so please, please, PLEASE, if you do not want to have the show spoiled, don’t read any further until you’ve seen the episode(s)!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers know that Kandi Burress is uber competitive. We can’t wait to see how her competitive prowess plays out on this season of Celebrity Big Brother.
Kandi won’t be the first Real Housewife to be a Big Brother houseguest. In its first season, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, Brandi Glanville, made it to day 24 out of 26 after two back to back nominations for eviction.What will be Kandi’s strategy to avoid getting
dragged in this b*tch put on the block?
Is there such a thing as “too much” reality TV? We don’t think so. Even so, there are a lot of shows to keep track of! We are here to make your TV viewing a little bit easier. Check out our reality TV listings of shows to watch this week!
Lindsay Lohan is not the only Lohan family member making a return to reality TV. Her infamous momager Dina Lohan will be a part of Celebrity Big Brother Season 2. This means that she will be locked up in a house without the ability to watch Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club.
Even though Dina will not be able to keep in touch with Lindsay and her other children while she’s in the Celebrity Big Brother House, Lindsay helped her prepare. Plus, if Lindsay wants to see what’s up to she can just check out the live feeds or tune into the show itself, which will be on a few times a week starting January 21.
The Season 2 Celebrity Big Brother cast has been announced! Just like a lot of “celebrity” reality TV shows, there are some familiar names along with others that will have you asking “Who?”
Longtime Big Brother host Julie Chen will return as host when the show starts up its second season in a couple weeks.
Last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live was chock full of shade. Danielle Staub (shockingly) owned up to her bridezilla antics. Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club namesake Lindsay Lohan talked Real Housewives and her rumored hook up with Jax Taylor. Host Andy Cohen was loving every second of it and so was I.
Are you even a reality TV star if you don’t have a podcast? At this point, hosting your own podcast has become a rite of passage for reality TV stars. Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Brandi Glanville has had one for a while and now Vanderpump Rules cast member (and Brandi’s ex-husband’s former mistress) Scheana Marie has her own show as well.
Even though Brandi and Scheana have made peace, it still rubbed Brandi the wrong way when she found out that Scheana had a podcast with the same company that had a very similar premise to her own. To make matters worse, Brandi’s longtime enemy (and Scheana’s boss) Lisa Vanderpump’s influence over Scheana caused Brandi to (temporarily) quit her own show.
Aside from that one argument with NeNe Leakes, Claudia Jordan’s time on Real Housewives of Atlanta is easy to forget. After all, she was only on the show for one season. Even so, she says that she was asked to come back for more, but she still didn’t get that offer to hold a peach in the opening credits, i.e. a full-time spot as a Real Housewife.
Claudia explained why she left the show after she was offered the opportunity to be a “Friend of the Housewives” and threw some shade at her former costars.
